What Makes this Dessert SO Fabulous?

  • The texture is silky smooth with a rich flavor of chocolate.

  • It’s made with Silken Tofu, plus dark chocolate chips, coffee liqueur, honey and vanilla extract.

  • It’s high in protein instead of high in FAT, like most pies are.

  • Loaded with antioxidants from dark chocolate chips.

  • This dessert won’t break the bank!  Silken Tofu costs under $3.00 per package.  

  • It takes about 5 minutes to make, not counting the prep time for the tofu to rest on the counter to warm up.

  • For our VEGAN friends, just omit my whipped cream on top and enjoy this pie. Or instead, make coconut whipped cream for this dessert.  Only I recommend to use the canned coconut cream. 

  • And what’s more, this chocolate cream pie is adaptable to using a variety of already graham cracker pie crusts, including gluten-free pie crust, the new walnut pie crust and pecan pie crust.

COOK’s NOTES and TIPS for Silky Chocolate Cream Pie:

  • Perfect desert to make ahead and chill over night.

  • It’s very important to allow the temperature of the Tofu to warm up on your counter for at least  15 minutes or more before blending with hot melted chocolate.  Otherwise, the coldness of the Tofu may not blend very well and will ruin the mixture.

  • For this recipe, it is best to blend in a food processor.  Be sure to POUR in the melted chocolate through the feed tube on top and while it’s still very hot, before it starts to cool down.  This will ensure the Tofu will blend into a creamy mixture.

  • This chocolate cream pie will be very warm, and needs to be chilled in the refrigerator, uncovered for a few hours.  Stays fresh up to 2 days.  Best served chilled.

     

     

 

What is Tofu? 

Tofu is a plant-based product made from soybeans.  It’s made from the curds of soymilk and those curds are pressed into blocks and then made into different textures such as: soft, firm and extra firm. 

 

Where Can I Buy Tofu?

Silken tofu can be found in the dairy section at your local supermarket.  You can even find organic Silken Tofu at Whole Foods, or buy it on line.  Tofu is inexpensive, it costs under $3.oo  per package.

Be sure to buy the “soft” Silken Tofu, and not the “firm” one.  The soft tofu is the one that is used primarily for desserts, where the firm tofu is used for cooking.

 

Can I Omit the Coffee Liqueur ?

Yes you can! I have made this pie a dozen times, and made it only once without any liqueur; and it still tasted great!  So no worries, it won’t be a deal breaker.

Silky Chocolate Cream Pie - Dairy Free!

Silky Chocolate Cream Pie - Dairy Free!
Silky Chocolate Cream Pie is a celebration to have your cake and eat it too and without any guilt! Simply  because it's dairy-free and loaded with protein and antioxidants instead of fat.  Plus, this is a no bake chocolate cream pie that takes less than 15 minutes to make from start to finish! 
Prep Time 13 minutes
Cook Time 2 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 12-ounces dark chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup coffee liqueur (I used Kahlua)
  • 14-ounces Silken Tofu SOFT - room temperature
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 ready ( 9-inch) chocolate pie crust (or a gluten-free crust)
  • Optional: white chocolate grated, and mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, as garnish

For Whipped Cream:

  • 2 cups heavy cream (or canned coconut cream)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp. powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. First, open package of Tofu and drain the liquid. Set it aside to warm up to room temperature for at least 15 minutes, and before you start melting the chocolate.
  2. When you are ready, prepare the ready pie crust,. Open the package and set it aside.
  3. In a double boiler, melt chocolate chips until completely melted.
  4. Whisk vigorously the coffee liqueur as you pour it into the melted chocolate. Remove from heat, so you don't burn the chocolate.
  5. Use a food processor (or blender). Add Silken Tofu, honey and vanilla. Blend on high speed for about 1 to 2 minutes, until smooth and well blended.
  6. Carefully open the spout of the food processor ( or blender) and slowly pour in the hot chocolate mixture while it's still blending on medium speed. The melted chocolate has to be hot in order to get the consistency needed for this chocolate pie. Close the lid.
  7. Press on the highest speed, and puree for a few minutes, until mixture is well combined.
  8. Pour chocolate mixture into a 9-inch pie crust.
  9. Chill uncovered for 3 to 4 hours, then you can cover or lightly wrap with clear wrap. Or chill overnight. Garnish on top with some grated white chocolate, along with a sprinkle of mini chocolate chips. Serve slices with dollop of whipped cream on top.
  10. Yields: 6 to 8 slices

TO MAKE WHIPPED CREAM:

  1. In a stainless steel mixing bowl, beat heavy cream with vanilla extract for about 3 minutes. Continue to beat on high speed and add in powdered sugar while beating, until it forms peaks. Cover with clear wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve with the pie.

    Thank you for this delicious recipe which I’m trying out today with the silken tofu! I appreciate that it’s a dessert without gluten and sugar (except a little in the very dark chocolate I am going to use)! My whipped coconut milk topping will also be without sugar! I can even make it into a pudding and omit the crumb base!!

      You are so welcome Sandra! And yes! The coconut cream will make a lovely whipped cream substitute for this pie! I would suggest serving the whipped topping on the side or on top of each slice when serving. Enjoy!!
